Because visual imput is not always actively perceived, the experience of the same sensory input can vary greatly, depending on internal processes within the brain. Jorrit Montijn presents experimental results and theoretical interpretations of how cortical circuits process sensory information, and how these processes may be relevant for the perception of stimuli. It has been proposed that the brain can best be studied as an information processing device, and Montijn argues that the computations that the brain performs act at a network-level of populations of neurons, rather than at the level of the single cell.
